Take a chance on Gerry. It's only a movie, and you'll get out alive no matter what happens on the screen. You might even find you've had a rare adventure.

The A.V. Club
Conceptually bold and rapturously beautiful Gerry, a minimalist landscape film that's unlike anything on the American independent scene.
91
The movie is on some level a stunt, but it has the fervent, sun-dazed pull of an authentic experience unfolding in real time, with glints of drama, comedy, and terror mixed into the almost-but-not-quite tedium.

Dallas Observer
There's elegance and grace here, fostering an opportunity to reflect upon why men get so dutiful about being down. It's worth the hike.
50
New York Post
A gorgeously shot endurance test that is impossible to get through on anything less than a full night's sleep and a double shot of espresso.

New York Magazine (Vulture)
A wee Boy Scout would have done far better in the wilds. It’s tough to think "Waiting for Godot" when what you’re watching is closer to "Dumb & Dumber."

New York Daily News
Gerry isn't much of anything, and doesn't claim to be. It's a movie stripped of its movieness.

Variety
Defiantly uncommunicative picture.
25
Baltimore Sun
The desert is clean in Gerry, but it's also empty.
0
Gerry is ragingly bad art that contributes to a definition of independent film as something no one would want to sit through.
